State Flag

December brings cold fronts and cold fronts bring brisk winds out of the north, which, in turn, make it a great day to be a flag.

Originally, the national flag of the Republic of Texas it became the official state flag when Texas became the 28th state of the union in 1845 and is the fourth of the “Six Flags” of Texas.


  1. This is gorgeous. I always have a hard time capturing a waving flag in a photo.

    This may be off topic, but does the six flags of Texas have anything to do with the amusement park, Six Flags? I used to go to Great America all the time :-D

  2. The "original" Six Flags amusement park was in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and took its name from the historic Six Flags over Texas. They then expanded and kept the Six Flags as their corporate logo.

    So... to answer your question. Yes.

  3. I love Texas flag!! I really do and I wasn't born in Texas!
